When I drew this, I named it “Maria” … no particular reason; she just looked like a “Maria”. When I went to post it, however, it struck me as a Madonna, but a dark, devilish one … hence she became “Diabla”.
This one started with the one line squiggle that forms the forehead, nose, mouth, chin and eye … the rest then followed – I had to draw my way out of it. This process produces some of my most interesting work.
Puns … I can’t help it; I love them. Here an impression of the sea is coupled with vision.
I often surprise myself with my own drawings. I drew an elegant lady with her hair up and a bright pink gown with matching earrings. There was no special reason for this subject matter … it just evolved. Now I like it more every time I look at it. I hope you feel it too.
As my life is affected by current events, my art is as well. I’ve been working over the past week with volunteers assisting the victims of the devastating wildfires in Northern California …
“Merman” … water wishes for the fire area
“Fire 2” … El Diablo
I drew this less than an hour before my brother called to tell me of our mother’s passing. My first thought was to call it “Death”, but I thought that too morbid so I called it “Aging”. Interesting the wavelength inspiration travels on. We’ll miss you Mom.
Clear cut, simple communication.
Funny … I like this one, but it rated very poorly on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter compared to the average. What do I know? I’m just the messenger.
Any random rock star or maybe a self portrait of an earlier wanna be rock star )))
Back in the late 60’s and early 70’s I did some rock art posters … wish I had done more. These days the posters I create a few times a year are for social causes. I firmly believe you’ve got to give back.
